I thought he did that, in part, to honour his sister who died when he was very young?
Whatever the reasons behind all of these rituals, there's always someone who will complain about it, so it's generally best kept private. Some think it's arrogant to 'thank God for a win', because it suggests God likes you more than your opponent, but the reality is that most people 'thanking God', are being grateful for the talent, or the strength to work hard, and that approach is arguably a lot less arrogant, because it comes with the implicit belief that you are not at the centre of it all.
I love those 'backstage' photos. It's fascinating to see who all turns up, and I love the idea of Andy crashing Will's interview. It shows how much comfortable he is within himself. Also, he likes Will Ferrell!
Kevin's such a fanboi!
Thanks for jogging my memory. Yes, he did say once it was partly in remembrance of his sister, whose death must have been a terrible shock to him, and also to thank God for giving him the great tennis talent which he has.
Anyway we don't know for sure that Andy does it for any religious reason, although I suppose it's inevitable that that's going to be the 'obvious' conclusion for most people.
Re the photos of him with Will and Kevin - I admit that I often find his off-court pics far more interesting than the ones of him playing, mainly because these are largely repetitive.
